    Default How to remove a window from a wall and close it up

    An additional room was added to my house by previous owners, and it shares a wall with my bathroom. Very odd to be able to look out into a room from a bathroom window. The shared wall was exterior, so the wall is stucco. What's the easiest solution - can i throw up drywall over the window?

    well you cant just put drywall up over the window. youll have to remove the window sashes and frame along with the trim. from there put some studs in the opening which will give you something to fasten drywall to provided both sides are both interior . if one side is still exteior youll need to put insulation in the stud spaces then put some plywood on the outside and make it weather proof
    fire up the saw and make some dust

    You are looking at removing the old window completely, which includes the window frame itself, not just the glas holding bits. The frame face entends into the original room as far as the face of the drywall, so the frame has to go. Once the window is removed, you can add studding to the window frame and drywall on the inside. On the outside - were you planning on matching the original stucco?

    Hi, all!
    This is actually my first post on these boards, hopefully you guys could help me with this little problem.
    I realize I'm bumping an old thread, but I didn't quite seem to get what I needed from it.
    I am in a similar situation as the original poster on this conversation. There was a room added to the house that shares a wall with part of the dining room and bedroom. It also shares a window with the bedroom which I wanted to completely remove and close in.
    The shared wall has sheetrock on the bedroom side, but it still has the exterior wooden siding on the other side. I really wanted to install sheetrock where the siding is now.
    So, what would be the best way to go about removing and closing up the window and also installing sheetrock on that wall?

    Code says: a bedroom must have a window to the exterior. The size of the window depends on the size of the room.

    If you remove that window, will you be in violation?

    Thanks for the response!
    There is another window in the bedroom that leads to the exterior, I believe it is a 3x4. So, that wouldn't be a concern in this case.
